I felt like writing today...

Not because it is raining outside again, or frustration. And let’s face it, the most of the stuff passing on the Facebook timeline is all about trump or some silly thing you need to tag someone in. But more because I just came out of our monthly meeting. And my name was coming up in the department event overview...

Cris is working less from January first!

I made that choice not long ago, but somehow it didn’t land. But now it did! When the clock is hitting 00:00 on December 31st it is a new step in the new and for me exciting direction my life is going. A while back I made the choice to make focus more on my photography. I can’t do that when I am working as a IT engineer all the time, and you only can spend time once. That’s why it is so precious…

That moment I heard the words spoken in front of the department it gave it an identity, it made it real. I really have to! No more procrastinating, no more doubting, no more taking things slow. I really have to. And I don’t mind of course. Being motivated to achieve a goal has never been, or will be a problem for me. That is a part luckily I discovered about myself. Neither as the fear of failing. If I do, I will just do it again until I find another way to succeed. As long as I don’t hurt the ones I love I am good to go. Even it takes me a hundred years…

That takes me to the after lunch walk I had with a couple of my closest colleagues. One of them, a guy with a big ass heart and has more potential than he realizes asked me a couple of questions. Don’t remember exactly what it was. But the end result was that I was explaining why… Why I do what I do.

And the answer in short was that if I can achieve two goals in life I can die a happy man. One of them I keep close to my heart, and I only talk about with one person in my life. The other one is telling stories…

And telling stories is what this story is about. Call it a storyception haha. And I don’t actually care how I tell stories, but somehow the camera crossed my path and I started using it to tell the stories that are in my head. How I see the world, and how I experience life and express myself. Or how I see the souls of this earth. And if I can somehow can touch person with my stories, so that they can find their passion or, finally pursue theirs  I feel fulfilled… Gets me closer to one of my life purposes…

Yesterday I wrote on Instagram (Don't forget to follow me on instagram haha ;-)):

“The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made of words. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish... We are co-creating it with intention. The butterfly effect in information triggered by ideas... Reality is made of language and therefore energy, and we are committed creating it through thought...”

Just let that resonate for a while and you will know what I mean by this….

And hopefully this little piece of writing will trigger something to do more of what you love.

I can make it a longer one. But this seems enough.

And a perfect way to close this Thursday afternoon…
